'Nasty' business relationship with Mueller amounts to conflict of interest

President Donald Trump should not sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller, his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said.

"I don't even know if that's a crime, colluding about Russians", Giuliani told CNN's Alisyn Camerota during a Monday morning interview on "New Day".

Collusion is not technically a legal charge, but Mr Mueller could bring conspiracy charges if he believes there was such work by campaign managers with Russian Federation. "That's up to the president and Mueller to describe, it's not part of my legal representation".

Mueller might decide, for example, that a crime was committed if he finds evidence that an American was involved in the hack of Democrats, either by soliciting it or paying someone to do it. "Collusion is not a crime".

He later told CNN: "The hacking is the crime".

Trump, who has called the probe - which also seeks to determine whether the ex-reality TV star's campaign team colluded with Russian Federation and whether he obstructed justice - a "witch hunt" and repeatedly demanded it be ended, claimed that Mueller's team is filled with Democrats. And even if, hypothetically, Trump did collude, he said, it wouldn't be illegal or anything.

Bledsoe said he did not know his home was in danger when he left his wife and great-grandchildren to run an errand on Thursday. Keswick, a mountain town of about 450 people, was reduced to an ashy moonscape of blackened trees and smoldering rubble.

The former NY mayor said if Trump is interviewed by Mueller's legal team, "Our real concern is they're going to set up a perjury trap", attempting to catch Trump, who often misstates facts, in a lie, which is a criminal offense. A spokesman for Mueller said there was no dispute when Mueller, who was Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the time, left the club, the Post said.

"I'm not sure I know what exactly what the conflict is", Giuliani said.

CNBC noted Mueller in 2011 ended his membership at Trump National Golf Club in Virginia after a fee dispute.

Trump's tweet came hours before the start of a trial brought on by the special counsel against Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, who is charged with 18 violations of tax and banking laws related to his foreign lobbying work.

Giuliani would also appear on "Fox & Friends" on Monday to offer a similar claim. The president has previously raised questions regarding what he has alleged as conflicts of interest among Mueller's team dating back to as early as July 2017.

Dershowitz said to pay attention to whether the prosecution hints at Manafort's relationship with Trump.
